Interim Head of School

Bishop John T. Walker School for Boys
Washington, DC United States

The Bishop Walker School (BWS) is seeking an interim Head of School for one or possibly two years starting July 1, 2023. This is not a caretaker position. It is an opportunity to build on the strong foundation created by the current Head of School, continue the implementation of the recently adopted strategic plan, lead the talented and dedicated faculty and staff, and continue to build the BWS community.

It takes a special person to lead BWS. The school is seeking someone who has a keen understanding of young black and brown boys, who is familiar with communities like BWS, and who connects deeply and authentically with the mission, the vision, and the school’s families. The interim Head of School must be an engaged and engaging school leader, with elementary school experience. This candidate must also have a demonstrated ability to lead and inspire the academic team. Because BWS is a tuition-free school, it is essential that the interim Head of School be skilled in fundraising and telling the BWS story in an inspiring way,  as well as understand school promotion, and school finances. It is equally essential that the Head of School be a role model for the boys and their families.
